The Life and Work of Mario Capecchi - Part 4

Distinguished Professor Mario Capecchi
University of Utah

Salt Lake City, UT – Humans and mice have many genes in common. To inform our understanding of how these genes work, scientists in Mario Capecchi's laboratory at the University of Utah use genetic techniques to modify DNA in living mice. The mice are maintained in a building on the campus known as the Mouse House. In the fourth segment in our series on Mario Capecchi's groundbreaking work in genetics, Sheri Quinn takes us inside the facility where the mice are made.

The Life and Career of Mario Capecchi - Part 3

Distinguished Professor Mario R. Capcecchi
University of Utah

Salt Lake City, UT – In the 1980's, University of Utah geneticist Mario Capecchi developed gene targeting technology, which allows scientists to tailor mutations in specifric genes. Researchers around the world use it to manipulate mouse DNA. With this tool, scientists at the University of Utah have recently created a mouse with a deadly form of childhood muscle cancer. Sheri Quinn reports on how this new mouse model might help fight the disease.
